WHAT CAUSES ACNE AND ACNE SCARS:
Acne is one of the most prevailing and persistent skin conditions. When left untreated or subjected to improper care, the skin fosters scars that are difficult to treat in the long run. One of the most prominent types resides in the cystic variety, which can be contributed by hormonal cycles — and can be harder to deal with compared to your average blemishes. When pores get clogged with oil and dirt, they can get congested and inflamed. And when treated poorly or left untreated, severe acne may lead to scarring or darkened marks on the skin surface.
At La Clinic, our acne treatments can help you achieve skin revitalisation while rebuilding your skin barrier. Improvements will accelerate after each additional session.
WHO ARE SUITABLE PATIENTS:
Our acne treatments are suited for those who experience or suffer from acne scars, uneven skin pigmentation left by previous spots, and who experience active acne breakouts around the forehead, mouth and cheeks.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TREATMENT:
Fractional CO2 laser is effective for acne scars and atrophic scars. Our treatment results in improved skin tone and elasticity. It phases out damaged skin cells and increases the rate of cell renewal, thus progressively lightening dark spots and imbalanced scarring. As every patient is evaluated individually to determine the ideal course of treatment, our doctors will provide a tailor-made treatment plan to meet your expectations. It is an attractive alternative to surgical methods as it is a speedy procedure that can be accomplished with little to no downtime.
TREATMENTS OFFERED (SCARRING):
Fractional CO2 laser
The leading choice for reliable acne scar removal. This advanced technology reduces injury to surrounding tissue and promotes enhanced healing with minimal pain – all greatly desirable traits for aesthetic surgery. Even more impressively, the CO2 resurfacing laser is designed to treats both the epidermis and dermis layers. This allows for treatment to deeper parts of the skin, treating more stubborn skin conditions.
This is an alternative treatment for repairing damaged dermal cells, promotes skin cell growth through inducing fibroblast and collagen production. It is injected under a scar to break up the current scar tissue. This will result in a shallower scar. With its restorative and reparative properties, this procedure is well suited for acne scar treatments.
